Chikungunya

chikungunya virus, chikungunya
Chikungunya is an infection caused by the chikungunya virus CHIKV3 Symptoms include fever and joint pain2 These typically occur two to twelve days after exposure3 Other symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling, and a rash Most people are better within a week; however, occasionally the joint pain may last for months2 The risk of death is around 1 in 1,0004 The very young, old, and those with other health problems are at risk of more severe disease2

The virus is spread between people by two types of mosquitos: Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti3 They mainly bite during the day5 The virus may circulate within a number of animals including birds and rodents Diagnosis is by either testing the blood for the virus's RNA or antibodies to the virus The symptoms can be mistaken for those of dengue fever and Zika fever3 After a single infection it is believed most people become immune22

The best means of prevention is overall mosquito control and the avoidance of bites in areas where the disease is common4 This may be partly achieved by decreasing mosquitoes' access to water and with the use of insect repellent and mosquito nets There is no vaccine and no specific treatment as of 20163 Recommendations include rest, fluids, and medications to help with fever and joint pain32

While the disease typically occurs in Africa and Asia, outbreaks have been reported in Europe and the Americas since the 2000s In 2014 more than a million suspected cases occurred3 In 2014 it was occurring in Florida in the continental United States but as of 2016 there was no further locally acquired cases67 The disease was first identified in 1952 in Tanzania3 The term is from the Kimakonde language and means "to become contorted"3

Signs and symptomsedit

The incubation period of the chikungunya virus ranges from one to twelve days, and is most typically three to seven8 The disease may be asymptomatic, but generally is not, as 72% to 97% of those infected will develop symptoms8 Characteristic symptoms include sudden onset with high fever, joint pain, and rash Other symptoms may occur, including headache, fatigue, digestive complaints, and conjunctivitis9

Information gained during recent epidemics suggests that chikungunya fever may result in a chronic phase as well as the phase of acute illness10 Within the acute phase, two stages have been identified: a viral stage during the first five to seven days, during which viremia occurs,11 followed by a convalescent stage lasting approximately ten days, during which symptoms improve and the virus cannot be detected in the blood8 Typically, the disease begins with a sudden high fever that lasts from a few days to a week, and sometimes up to ten days The fever is usually above 39 °C 102 °F and sometimes reaching 40 °C 104 °F and may be biphasic—lasting several days, breaking, and then returning Fever occurs with the onset of viremia, and the level of virus in the blood correlates with the intensity of symptoms in the acute phase11 When IgM, an antibody that is a response to the initial exposure to an antigen, appears in the blood, viremia begins to diminish However, headache, insomnia and an extreme degree of exhaustion remain, usually about five to seven days12

Following the fever, strong joint pain or stiffness occurs; it usually lasts weeks or months, but may last for years The joint pain can be debilitating, often resulting in near immobility of the affected joints13 Joint pain is reported in 87–98% of cases, and nearly always occurs in more than one joint, though joint swelling is uncommon8 Typically the affected joints are located in both arms and legs, and are affected symmetrically Joints are more likely to be affected if they have previously been damaged by disorders such as arthritis10 Pain most commonly occurs in peripheral joints, such as the wrists, ankles, and joints of the hands and feet as well as some of the larger joints, typically the shoulders, elbows and knees810 Pain may also occur in the muscles or ligaments

Rash occurs in 40-50% of cases, generally as a maculopapular rash occurring two to five days after onset of symptoms8 Digestive symptoms, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, may also occur8914 In more than half of cases, normal activity is limited by significant fatigue and pain8 Infrequently, inflammation of the eyes may occur in the form of iridocyclitis, or uveitis, and retinal lesions may occur15

Temporary damage to the liver may occur16

Rarely, neurological disorders have been reported in association with chikungunya virus, including Guillain–Barré syndrome, palsies, meningoencephalitis, flaccid paralysis and neuropathy9 In contrast to dengue fever, Chikungunya fever very rarely causes hemorrhagic complications Symptoms of bleeding should lead to consideration of alternative diagnoses or co-infection with dengue fever or coexisting congestive hepatopathy11

Chronic diseaseedit

Observations during recent epidemics have suggested chikungunya may cause long-term symptoms following acute infection171819 This condition has been termed chronic chikungunya virus-induced arthralgia4 Long-term symptoms are not an entirely new observation; long-term arthritis was observed following an outbreak in 197920 Common predictors of prolonged symptoms are advanced age and prior rheumatological disease21222324

During the La Reunion outbreak in 2006, more than 50% of subjects over the age of 45 reported long-term musculoskeletal pain22 with up to 60% of people reporting prolonged painful joints three years following initial infection21 A study of imported cases in France reported that 59% of people still suffered from arthralgia two years after acute infection25 Following a local epidemic of chikungunya in Italy, 66% of people reported muscle pains, joint pains, or asthenia at one year after acute infection23

Currently, the cause of these chronic symptoms is not fully known Markers of autoimmune or rheumatoid disease have not been found in people reporting chronic symptoms2126 However, some evidence from humans and animal models suggests chikungunya may be able to establish chronic infections within the host Viral antigen was detected in a muscle biopsy of a person suffering a recurrent episode of disease three months after initial onset27 Additionally, viral antigen and viral RNA were found in macrophages in the synovial joint of a person experiencing a relapse of musculoskeletal disease 18 months after initial infection28 Several animal models have also suggested chikungunya virus may establish persistent infections In a mouse model, viral RNA was detected specifically in joint-associated tissue for at least 16 weeks after inoculation, and was associated with chronic synovitis29 Similarly, another study reported detection of a viral reporter gene in joint tissue of mice for weeks after inoculation30 In a nonhuman primate model, chikungunya virus was found to persist in the spleen for at least six weeks31

Causeedit

Virologyedit

Chikungunya virus
Virus classification
Group: Group IV +ssRNA
Order: Unassigned
Family: Togaviridae
Genus: Alphavirus
Species: Chikungunya virus

Chikungunya virus CHIKV, is a member of the alphavirus genus, and Togaviridae family It was first isolated in 1953 in Tanzania and is an RNA virus with a positive-sense single-stranded genome of about 116kb33 It is a member of the Semliki Forest virus complex and is closely related to Ross River virus, O'nyong'nyong virus, and Semliki Forest virus34 Because it is transmitted by arthropods, namely mosquitoes, it can also be referred to as an arbovirus arthropod-borne virus In the United States, it is classified as a category C priority pathogen,35 and work requires biosafety level III precautions36

Transmissionedit

Chikungunya is generally transmitted from mosquitoes to humans Less common modes of transmission include vertical transmission, which is transmission from mother to child during pregnancy or at birth Transmission via infected blood products and through organ donation is also theoretically possible during times of outbreak, though no cases have yet been documented10

Chikungunya is related to mosquitoes, their environments, and human behavior The adaptation of mosquitoes to the changing climate of North Africa around 5,000 years ago made them seek out environments where humans stored water Human habitation and the mosquitoes’ environments were then very closely connected During periods of epidemics humans are the reservoir of the virus Because high amounts of virus are present in the blood in the beginning of acute infection, the virus can be spread from a viremic human to a mosquito, and back to a human37 During other times, monkeys, birds and other vertebrates have served as reservoirs38 Three genotypes of this virus have been described, each with a distinct genotype and antigenic character: West African, East/Central/South African, and Asian genotypes39 The Asian lineage originated in 1952 and has subsequently split into two lineages - India Indian Ocean Lineage and South East Asian clades This virus was first reported in the Americas in 2014 Phylogenetic investigations have shown that there are two strains in Brazil - the Asian and East/Central/South African types - and that the Asian strain arrived in the Caribbean most likely from Oceania in about March 201340 The rate of molecular evolution was estimated to have a mean rate of 5 × 10−4 substitutions per site per year 95% higher probability density 29-79 × 10−4 typical of RNA viruses

Chikungunya is spread through bites from Aedes mosquitoes, and the species A aegypti was identified as the most common vector, though the virus has recently been associated with many other species, including A albopictus10 Research by the Pasteur Institute in Paris has suggested chikungunya virus strains in the 2005-2006 Reunion Island outbreak incurred a mutation that facilitated transmission by the Asian tiger mosquito A albopictus41 Other species potentially able to transmit the chikungunya virus include Ae furcifer-taylori, Ae africanus, and Ae luteocephalus10

Mechanismedit

The chikungunya virus is passed to humans when a bite from an infected mosquito breaks the skin and introduces the virus into the body The pathogenesis of chikungunya infection in humans is still poorly understood, despite recent outbreaks It appears that in vitro, chikungunya virus is able to replicate in human epithelial and endothelial cells, primary fibroblasts, and monocyte-derived macrophages Viral replication is highly cytopathic, but susceptible to type-I and -II interferon42 In vivo, in studies using living cells, chikungunya virus appears to replicate in fibroblasts, skeletal muscle progenitor cells, and myofibers274344

The type-1 interferon response seems to play an important role in the host's response to chikungunya infection Upon infection with chikungunya, the host's fibroblasts produce type-1 alpha and beta interferon IFN-α and IFN-β45 In mouse studies, deficiencies in INF-1 in mice exposed to the virus cause increased morbidity and mortality454647 The chikungunya-specific upstream components of the type-1 interferon pathway involved in the host's response to chikungunya infection are still unknown48 Nonetheless, mouse studies suggest that IPS-1 is an important factor,48 and that IRF3 and IRF7 are important in an age-dependent manner4950 Mouse studies also suggest that chikungunya evades host defenses and counters the type-I interferon response by producing NS2, a nonstructural protein that degrades RBP1 and turns off the host cell's ability to transcribe DNA51 NS2 interferes with the JAK-STAT signaling pathway and prevents STAT from becoming phosphorylated52

In the acute phase of chikungunya, the virus is typically present in the areas where symptoms present, specifically skeletal muscles, and joints In the chronic phase, it is suggested that viral persistence the inability of the body to entirely rid itself of the virus, lack of clearance of the antigen, or both, contribute to joint pain The inflammation response during both the acute and chronic phase of the disease results in part from interactions between the virus and monocytes and macrophages11 Chikungunya virus disease in humans is associated with elevated serum levels of specific cytokines and chemokines High levels of specific cytokines have been linked to more severe acute disease: interleukin-6 IL-6, IL-1β, RANTES, monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 MCP-1, monokine induced by gamma interferon MIG, and interferon gamma-induced protein 10 IP-10 Cytokines may also contribute to chronic chikungunya virus disease, as persistent joint pain has been associated with elevated levels of IL-6 and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor GM-CSF37 In those with chronic symptoms, a mild elevation of C-reactive protein CRP has been observed, suggesting ongoing chronic inflammation However, there is little evidence linking chronic chikungunya virus disease and the development of autoimmunity

Viral replicationedit

Transmission electron micrograph of Chikungunya virus particles

The virus consists of four nonstructural proteins and three structural proteins11 The structural proteins are the capsid and two envelope glycoproteins: E1 and E2, which form heterodimeric spikes on the viron surface E2 binds to cellular receptors in order to enter the host cell through receptor-mediated endocytosis E1 contains a fusion peptide which, when exposed to the acidity of the endosome in eukaryotic cells, dissociates from E2 and initiates membrane fusion that allows the release of nucleocapsids into the host cytoplasm, promoting infection53 The mature virion contains 240 heterodimeric spikes of E2/E1, which after release, bud on the surface of the infected cell, where they are released by exocytosis to infect other cells33

Diagnosisedit

Chikungunya is diagnosed on the basis of clinical, epidemiological, and laboratory criteria Clinically, acute onset of high fever and severe joint pain would lead to suspicion of chikungunya Epidemiological criteria consist of whether the individual has traveled to or spent time in an area in which chikungunya is present within the last twelve days ie the potential incubation period Laboratory criteria include a decreased lymphocyte count consistent with viremia However a definitive laboratory diagnosis can be accomplished through viral isolation, RT-PCR, or serological diagnosis54

The differential diagnosis may include infection with other mosquito-borne viruses, such as dengue or malaria, and infection with influenza Chronic recurrent polyarthralgia occurs in at least 20% of chikungunya patients one year after infection, whereas such symptoms are uncommon in dengue55

Virus isolation provides the most definitive diagnosis, but takes one to two weeks for completion and must be carried out in biosafety level III laboratories56 The technique involves exposing specific cell lines to samples from whole blood and identifying chikungunya virus-specific responses RT-PCR using nested primer pairs is used to amplify several chikungunya-specific genes from whole blood, generating thousands to millions of copies of the genes in order to identify them RT-PCR can also be used to quantify the viral load in the blood Using RT-PCR, diagnostic results can be available in one to two days56 Serological diagnosis requires a larger amount of blood than the other methods, and uses an ELISA assay to measure chikungunya-specific IgM levels in the blood serum One advantage offered by serological diagnosis is that serum IgM is detectable from 5 days to months after the onset of symptoms, but drawbacks are that results may require two to three days, and false positives can occur with infection due to other related viruses, such as o'nyong'nyong virus and Semliki Forest virus56

Presently, there is no specific way to test for chronic signs and symptoms associated with Chikungunya fever although nonspecific laboratory findings such as C reactive protein and elevated cytokines can correlate with disease activity57

Preventionedit

Because no approved vaccine exists, the most effective means of prevention are protection against contact with the disease-carrying mosquitoes and controlling mosquito populations by limiting their habitat4 Mosquito control focuses on eliminating the standing water where mosquitos lay eggs and develop as larva; if elimination of the standing water is not possible, insecticides or biological control agents can be added11 Methods of protection against contact with mosquitos include using insect repellents with substances such as DEET, icaridin, PMD p-menthane-3,8-diol, a substance derived from the lemon eucalyptus tree, or IR3535 However, increasing insecticide resistance presents a challenge to chemical control methods

Wearing bite-proof long sleeves and trousers also offers protection, and garments can be treated with pyrethroids, a class of insecticides that often has repellent properties Vaporized pyrethroids for example in mosquito coils are also insect repellents As infected mosquitos often feed and rest inside homes, securing screens on windows and doors will help to keep mosquitoes out of the house In the case of the day-active A aegypti and A albopictus, however, this will have only a limited effect, since many contacts between the mosquitoes and humans occur outdoors

Vaccineedit

As of 2017update, no approved vaccines are available A phase-II vaccine trial used a live, attenuated virus, to develop viral resistance in 98% of those tested after 28 days and 85% still showed resistance after one year58 However, 8% of people reported transient joint pain, and attenuation was found to be due to only two mutations in the E2 glycoprotein59 Alternative vaccine strategies have been developed, and show efficacy in mouse models6061 In August 2014 researchers at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in the USA were testing an experimental vaccine which uses virus-like particles VLPs instead of attenuated virus All the 25 people participated in this phase 1 trial developed strong immune responses62 Phase 2 trial will commence using 400 adults aged 18 to 60 and take place at 6 locations in the Caribbean63 Even with a vaccine, mosquito population control and bite prevention will be necessary to control chikungunya disease64

Treatmentedit

Currently, no specific treatment for chikungunya is available4 Supportive care is recommended, and symptomatic treatment of fever and joint swelling includes the use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as naproxen, non-aspirin analgesics such as paracetamol acetaminophen and fluids4 Aspirin is not recommended due to the increased risk of bleeding65 Despite anti-inflammatory effects, corticosteroids are not recommended during the acute phase of disease, as they may cause immunosuppression and worsen infection10

Passive immunotherapy has potential benefit in treatment of chikungunya Studies in animals using passive immunotherapy have been effective, and clinical studies using passive immunotherapy in those particularly vulnerable to severe infection are currently in progress66 Passive immunotherapy involves administration of anti-CHIKV hyperimmune human intravenous antibodies immunoglobulins to those exposed to a high risk of chikungunya infection No antiviral treatment for chikungunya virus is currently available, though testing has shown several medications to be effective in vitro8

Chronic arthritisedit

In those who have more than two weeks of arthritis, ribavirin may be useful4 The effect of chloroquine is not clear4 It does not appear to help acute disease, but tentative evidence indicates it might help those with chronic arthritis4 Steroids do not appear to be an effective treatment4 NSAIDs and simple analgesics can be used to provide partial symptom relief in most cases Methotrexate, a drug used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, has been shown to have benefit in treating inflammatory polyarthritis resulting from chikungunya, though the drug mechanism for improving viral arthritis is unclear18

Prognosisedit

The mortality rate of chikungunya is slightly less than 1 in 100067 Those over the age of 65, neonates, and those with underlying chronic medical problems are most likely to have severe complications37 Neonates are vulnerable as it is possible to vertically transmit chikungunya from mother to infant during delivery, which results in high rates of morbidity, as infants lack fully developed immune systems37 The likelihood of prolonged symptoms or chronic joint pain is increased with increased age and prior rheumatological disease2122

Epidemiologyedit

Dark blue: Native range
Teal: introduced

Historically, chikungunya has been present mostly in the developing world The disease causes an estimated 3 million infections each year68 Epidemics in the Indian Ocean, Pacific Islands, and in the Americas, continue to change the distribution of the disease69 In Africa, chikungunya is spread by a sylvatic cycle in which the virus largely cycles between other non-human primates, small mammals, and mosquitos between human outbreaks9 During outbreaks, due to the high concentration of virus in the blood of those in the acute phase of infection, the virus can circulate from humans to mosquitoes and back to humans9 The transmission of the pathogen between humans and mosquitoes that exist in urban environments was established on multiple occasions from strains occurring on the eastern half of Africa in non-human primate hosts11 This emergence and spread beyond Africa may have started as early as the 18th century11 Currently, available data does not indicate whether the introduction of chikungunya into Asia occurred in the 19th century or more recently, but this epidemic Asian strain causes outbreaks in India and continues to circulate in Southeast Asia11 In Africa, outbreaks were typically tied to heavy rainfall causing increased mosquito population In recent outbreaks in urban centers, the virus has spread by circulating between humans and mosquitoes10

Global rates of chikungunya infection are variable, depending on outbreaks When chikungunya was first identified in 1952, it had a low-level circulation in West Africa, with infection rates linked to rainfall Beginning in the 1960s, periodic outbreaks were documented in Asia and Africa However, since 2005, following several decades of relative inactivity, chikungunya has re-emerged and caused large outbreaks in Africa, Asia, and the Americas In India, for instance, chikungunya re-appeared following 32 years of absence of viral activity70 Outbreaks have occurred in Europe, the Caribbean, and South America, areas in which chikungunya was not previously transmitted Local transmission has also occurred in the United States and Australia, countries in which the virus was previously unknown10 In 2005, an outbreak on the island of Réunion was the largest then documented, with an estimated 266,000 cases on an island with a population of approximately 770,00071 In a 2006 outbreak, India reported 125 million suspected cases72 Chikungunya was recently introduced to the Americas, and from 2013-14 in the Americas, 1,118,763 suspected cases and 24,682 confirmed cases were reported by the PAHO73

An analysis of the chikungunya virus's genetic code suggests that the increased severity of the 2005–present outbreak may be due to a change in the genetic sequence which altered the E1 segment of the virus' viral coat protein, a variant called E1-A226V This mutation potentially allows the virus to multiply more easily in mosquito cells74 The change allows the virus to use the Asian tiger mosquito an invasive species as a vector in addition to the more strictly tropical main vector, Aedes aegypti75 Enhanced transmission of chikungunya virus by A albopictus could mean an increased risk for outbreaks in other areas where the Asian tiger mosquito is present76 A albopictus is an invasive species which has spread through Europe, the Americas, the Caribbean, Africa and the Middle East

After the detection of zika virus in Brazil in April 2015, the first ever in the Western Hemisphere,7778 it is now thought some chikungunya and dengue cases could in fact be zika virus cases or coinfections

Historyedit

The word 'chikungunya' is believed to have been derived from a description in the Makonde language, meaning "that which bends up", of the contorted posture of people affected with the severe joint pain and arthritic symptoms associated with this disease79 The disease was first described by Marion Robinson80 and WHR Lumsden81 in 1955, following an outbreak in 1952 on the Makonde Plateau, along the border between Mozambique and Tanganyika the mainland part of modern-day Tanzania

According to the initial 1955 report about the epidemiology of the disease, the term 'chikungunya' is derived from the Makonde root verb kungunyala, meaning to dry up or become contorted In concurrent research, Robinson glossed the Makonde term more specifically as "that which bends up" Subsequent authors apparently overlooked the references to the Makonde language and assumed the term to have been derived from Swahili, the lingua franca of the region The erroneous attribution to Swahili has been repeated in numerous print sources82 Many erroneous spellings of the name of the disease are also in common use

Since its discovery in Tanganyika, Africa, in 1952, chikungunya virus outbreaks have occurred occasionally in Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia, but recent outbreaks have spread the disease over a wider range

The first recorded outbreak of this disease may have been in 177983 This is in agreement with the molecular genetics evidence that suggests it evolved around the year 170084

Biological weaponedit

Chikungunya was one of more than a dozen agents researched as potential biological weapons85

Researchedit

Infection was reduced in mosquitoes with the wMel strain of Wolbachia8687

It is part of the group of neglected tropical diseases88
